Electrical Engineering (continuing education)

Semester 6 Semester
Winter semester/summer semester
Without admission restriction.


The Master's distance learning programme in Electrical Engineering M.Sc. is aimed at engineers who wish to continue their academic education without interrupting their professional career. The programme includes the most up-to-date and technical content with close practical relevance in key areas of electrical engineering. It is offered in a four-semester and a six-semester version with specialisations in automation technology, microelectronics, power engineering and medical technology. The subject-related offer is supplemented by content from the area of social competence such as employee management and communication techniques as well as business and legal know-how. This strengthens important key competences and opens up excellent career opportunities for graduates. More detailed information can be found on the  website of the distance learning programme in Electrical Engineering (German).


Electrical engineering forms the technical basis of the metal, automotive and electrical industries and is growing rapidly. Master's graduates take on specialist and management tasks here. The programme concludes with the internationally recognised Master of Science (M.Sc.) and is accredited.

After a Master's degree, there is the possibility of a doctorate. The central contact point is the Graduate School.


The distance learning programme in electrical engineering can be completed part-time alongside full-time employment and is divided into four study sections. The first study section deals with the acquisition of interdisciplinary competences in the field of operational communication and the design of electronic systems. The second part of the study programme focuses on specialisation in selected future-oriented disciplines of automation technology, microelectronics, energy technology and medical technology. The third study section includes project development and project management, software and hardware engineering as well as business administration and law. In the fourth section, the Master's thesis is written. A detailed presentation of the study contents can be found in the module handbook (German).


Admission requirements for the Master's distance learning programme in Electrical Engineering are a completed relevant university degree and at least one year of professional experience after completion of the first degree programme. Bachelor's or diploma degrees in electrical engineering, mechatronics and technical computer science or related courses of study are relevant. For the four-semester variant, a degree in electrical engineering with 210 ECTS credits is required. A detailed description of the admission requirements can be found in the Special Provisions of the Examination Regulations (German).

We offer a separate Master's entry programme for technicians and master craftsmen. You can find out more about this on the website of the "Techniker zum Master" programme (German).

The 120 ECTS variant (90 ECTS variant) costs € 2,200 (€ 2,500) per semester. After six (four) semesters, the amount is reduced to € 500. Irrespective of this, a student fee of around € 145 is charged per semester.
